Leagues

The Granite Curling Club offers many leagues that cater to a wide range of skill levels and competitive interests. With so many choices, there's sure to be a league that's just right for you! Don't forget that curling is a social activity as well! After each game, teams head upstairs to chat, quench their thirst, and (depending on the league) eat.

Leagues are divided into two types: Manager's Choice (MC) and Skip's Choice (SC). For Manager's Choice leagues, curlers sign up as couples or individuals and the league manager puts them together into balanced teams based on skill levels and experience. For Skip's Choice leagues, curlers form a team and sign up as a team. If you're new to curling, you'll want to start with a Manager's Choice league.

In the list below, multiple game times mean you will play at one of the times listed depending on the week. Schedules are available prior to the start of league play, and all leagues have a substitute roster in case you need to miss a game.

See the fees for membership and leagues here.

If you can’t decide which league is right for you, send an email to the Leagues Coordinator and we’ll be glad to help you choose.

2022-2023 Sunday Novice
1:00pm Sep 11 2022 to Apr 9 2023 Yes

This casual league is a great place to learn the sport of curling, as these sessions focus on supporting the skill development of novices. Curlers with less than three years of experience or who have never had a class will benefit most. At each meeting, we spend the first half learning drills targeting specific skills, and the second half playing pick-up games where you can try playing a new position. Teams change week-by-week. The cost of this league is included in your membership. This league only meets on certain Sundays, so check the club calendar. Ask the league managers if you have questions about whether this is right for you!

5:00pm Sep 13 2022 to Apr 11 2023 No

Tuesday Supper League is a fun social league where curling teams are mixed up week by week - but the important thing is that everyone is on a consistent Supper team! It's an excellent league for new curlers, since you'll get to play with a lot of different people who can each teach you something new about the game. Supper teams take turns making meals for the league and eat while watching the Super League which happens right after their league time. This league might just be the most fun league at Granite!

2022-2023 Wednesday High School

High School League is open to all students Grade 8 & up. This is a casual, learn-to-curl league where teens can gather to play. All instruction and equipment will be provided. Each week will vary slightly based on the number of participants but will focus on skill development and games. Registration will remain open so that new players may join at any time during the season.

2022-2023 Wednesday Women's
7:00pm, 9:00pm Sep 14 2022 to Apr 12 2023 No

Wednesday Night Women’s League is a fun, hybrid league for women-identifying curlers who are interested in developing their skills, socializing, and playing some great games. In honor of the spirit of curling and the goal of establishing a welcoming environment for all, we are splitting the league into two pools: a semi-competitive pool (i.e., Skip’s Choice) and a non-competitive, social pool (i.e., Manager’s Choice). Curlers interested in the semi-competitive pool can sign up as a full team, whereas curlers interested in the non-competitive, social pool can sign up as an individual or pair. Teams from both pools will play each other throughout the season; however, a team’s record will only count within their pool. The season will end with a playdown within each pool.

Based on survey feedback, we are transitioning away from full meals, but teams are encouraged to bring snacks postgame to share with their competitors. Pending player interest, managers will incorporate occasional mini-skills clinics on a monthly basis before games.

League Managers: Kaitie Kovach and Shannon Brown

NOTE: Registration for this league is now closed, but contact leaguesmgr@curlingseattle.org to coordinate getting the last members of your Skip's Choice teams registered!

2022-2023 Thursday Morning

The Thursday morning league may be the best kept secret at GCC. It’s a casual league filled with players of all abilities that is an extremely welcoming environment for those who are new to the sport with experienced curlers around to help guide the way. Morning curling is followed by a lunch that allows you to socialize with your fellow curlers before tackling the rest of your day. If you have a flexible schedule or need a mid-week break from your daily grind, Thursday morning may be the perfect league for you!
